We were on our way to another restaurant when our cab driver suggested this one. So gald we listened to her! The food was great and the atmosphere was fantastic. Our server was very attentive and friendly. Definitely give Waterman's a try next time you are in VA Beach!

We stopped with our daughter, who is local to VB. One of her favorites. I got 1/2 lb. of shrimp appetizer for lunch. Wife got the fish tacos. Everything - including the orange crushes, was good. This place get mobbed in the summer, but is just right for a November lunch. Well prepared and well served. And the check was... More

Enjoyed the crabcake for lunch one day. Happy hour was nice and they served us 1/2 lb of shrimp for only $6. Drinks we're yummy. Had a margarita and tried an Orange crush for the first time. So good. Went there for Thursday night fb. Employees are very friendly!

In a recent visit to Virginia Beach Waterman's was the only good thing about the beach. The crabcakes were great and priced just right.

Waterman's is our go-to restaurant in the VB oceanfront. You can't go wrong with the atmosphere, food and service. Ask to see if you can get a seat with a view of the beach because that is always a plus. In the summer, they also have outdoor sitting and that is very popular when the weather is pleasant and fun...

I'm a "local" and when I want a good meal with a nice view of the ocean, Watermans. I usually go for Sunday brunch, but I went on a Saturday afternoon this week. I had the crab cakes, kinda small but oh so tasty! The yellow fin tuna wrap was very good and the service impeccable, Thanks to Mark. Watermans... More

I was looking for the best place to get She-crab soup. The local paper called the Pilot listed the top 3 places in the Virginia Bch area. Waterman's was on the list. We found out they started a special meal each night for ten dollars. The night we went the special was Flounder. I usually don't get flounder because it... More

Fun, lively atmosphere. Appetizers and entrees were amazing. The she crab soup was so good. I have never had it before but I would definitely try it again now. Nice view of the ocean from the window seats too.

Came into the restaurant with a big party, they were able to accommodate us into a nice big round table to fit everybody in a timely manner. Started off with some crush drinks- those are amazing!! Ordered some appetizers waiting for the rest of our party and the scallops with the bacon around them were to die for! Our waitress... More

Love the location of this restaurant. It has a perfect setting on the boardwalk. I highly recommend taking advantage of the outdoor seating if weather permits. The signature drink, the Orange Crush, is also very tasty--it comes in other flavor a too. The food is decent & the prices aren't bad at all considering the location. Definitely recommend a visit...
